...along with new figures for Lt. Pike (rear right) and Sgt. Harrington (center-right). Under the Sharp Practise rules, Bugler Bates now gives Pike the means to communicate with his command even in dispersed formation.

I'm making progress - albeit slow - with the gunboat. The new portholes are fitted and look good. Remaining fitting-out work consists of painting and mounting the main gun, erecting a bandstand with searchlight abaft the foremast, and crossing the yards and spars. I'll post photos when it's done, but it'll all have to wait for a week, since my wife and I have to help care for an elderly relative undergoing chemotherapy. I hope to play out the Attack on Yabhouti game sometime next month.
